On Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 the 10th Annual Twilight Run 5k will take place in the scenic Cook Park, in Tigard. Being that this is the 10th year, the event will now take place as a morning run, instead of evening, like it has been in the past. They will also offer a Twilight Kids Mile, which is a fun, not timed race (also offering t-shirts for the children). The Kids Mile will start at 9:00 am, while the Twilight run at Dawn will begin at 9:30 am. This race is in partnership with the Tigard Festival of Balloons. Participants will receive free entry into the Festival of Balloons. The Festival of Balloons will offer carnival rides, tasty food and drinks from several local restaurants and breweries. A definite family friendly event, you don’t want to miss.
The Twilight Run 5k at Dawn will take course along the scenic Tualatin River, it will wind through amazing views of wildlife and parks. The course alone, will make anyone want to run in this race! After crossing the finish line, participants will be invited to enjoy light food at the Awards Party. This is when the winners will be announced for the age group winners and the winners of the raffle basket. Although this is a family friendly event, dogs are not allowed at either race, or the Balloon Festival grounds.
This event helps boost student success at all 15 schools in the Tigard-Tualatin School District. Being a major fundraiser, donations are greatly appreciated. Foundation dollars pay for instructional assistants, part time licensed teachers, reading/ math/ science programs, technology, arts, and of course supplies. It also will help contribute to innovative grants awarded to teachers in district, SEED academic enrichment programs and college scholarships.
